The Life and Times of Col. Horatio Nelson Jackson with Mary Louis Blanchard

An auto trip across country is a daunting thing. Imagine doing it in 1902 when cars were less than reliable and roads were few and varied. Listen to the life and times of the accomplished Col. H. Nelson Jackson as presented by his granddaughter, Mary, who spent many summers on "The Point" which is located in South Hero across from Providence Island which is now called Phelps Point.
